Yay! I love filling these in and looking back to see what I wrote last time. Want a go? Here is the blank list-
I am having the exact opposite problem with my tea bags. They are just too strong! Also you must be a fast reader if you can read a Donna Tart book during a library lending period. I think I might borrow this list, looks fun!
There is no way I will be able to read The Goldfinch in 2 weeks and of course I won’t be able to renew it, might need to purchase…
I might borrow this list, looks fun!
I am having the opposite problem with tea. My teas bags are too strong! Also you must be a fast reader if you can finish a Donna Tart book in a library lending period!
